Third prestigious award for M/Y Spectre:
“The best vessels of the year 2019”
We are honored to announce that Benetti M/Y Spectre has been chosen as a winner of Robb Report: ” Best of the Best 2019″
M/Y Spectre is a worthy winner of the award because of its sporty performance, the cutting edge technology of the hull by Mulder Design, and Total Ride Control® by Naiad Dynamics.
Giorgio M. Cassetta, who designed the exteriors of M/Y “Spectre”. “Imagining, designing and building Spectre was a great opportunity, which my team and I honoured with our most dedicated attention and work. I am deeply grateful for this outstanding recognition and wish to thank deeply John and Jeanette Staluppi, all the team involved in this spectacular construction, my own team who have spared no effort and all those who have shown appreciation for Spectre which will always bear an important place in my heart”.
The dynamic exterior design of “Spectre” accommodates spacious interiors by Benetti’s Interior Style Department, which has created a modern yacht embellished by steel detailing and sculpted glazed surfaces. The atmosphere conjures up the mood of 1930s Art Deco found in New Orleans and Florida, which draws its inspiration from late 19th century French Liberty style.
The distinctive features that won the judges over also include the incredible performance and cutting edge technology of the “High Speed Cruising Hull” designed by Dutch firm Mulder Design and the innovative Total Ride Control® system by Naiad Dynamics. These two technologies give “Spectre” a top speed of 21.2 knots, with a range of 6,500 nautical miles at a speed of 12 knots.
“The High Speed Cruising Hull was developed by Mulder Design over the years with the target to increase cruising speed by 30% compared to conventional displacement hulls”, said Frank Mulder, founder of the Dutch studio. “This technology improves on board comfort and increases fuel efficiency at long range speed, thus obtaining serious long range capability”.
“We credit Mulder Design, Benetti and the yacht owner for their forward thinking and confidence in Naiad Dynamics”, said John Venables, CEO of Naiad Maritime Group. “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to apply our Total Ride Control technology for this superb yacht. Benetti has made this a reality”. The system significantly improves the cruising stability of “Spectre” and onboard comfort using two roll stabilizing fins, two forward pitch control canards and three independently controlled stern blades.
